collecting data

Trying to get in the mood to work on the National Observing Committee report for the Annual General Meeting...

This was sprung on me last year when I became the interim chair. An overdue report was expected and I had to really scramble.

It was sprung on my again this year with a short deadline. 

I said, no... you'll have to wait. 


Don't need passive-aggressive tones or "you should have known" attitudes. You can yell at me when I don't follow the dates in the committee documentation. Given there is NO [ed: scant] documentation, then you need to take a chill pill. 

You'd think people would be a little more friendly and accommodating. Given everything. Nope. 

And I'm getting really tired of people not carefully reading their email and responding to questions.

I did put out a note for input to the team. A few have chimed in, bolstering my spirits.

And I did start culling my Obs Comm folder in Thunderbird.

Got the award recipient list done. That alone took more time because of the wonderful quantities: 68 applications for the past year. It's still mind-boggling.


Edited. Stumbled across an old e-mail which I clearly did not read carefully. Committee reports are due end of February. OK. OK. I'm workin' on it.
